    A masterpiece out this June and I'll have to say on it then This is a fascinating contrast with perhaps my favorite novel LIFE AND FATE which is STALINGRAD's direct seuel STALINGRAD is the Iliad to that Odyssey Soviet censorship has made this a tamer conventional novel than it perhaps should have been but Grossman's accomplishmen

    It was about 3 years ago that I read “Life and Fate” At the time I looked for a translation of “Stalingrad” but the only non Russian language version available seemed to be in Spanish Although I greatly admired “Life and Fate” I was conscious throughout that I was missing out on the background of the characters Now that I’ve r

    As noted by the translator in the afterword Grossman envisioned 'Stalingrad' and 'Life and Fate' as one work so a proper evaluation cannot be given until both books have been read That being said there's no denying that 'Sta

    A remarkable but grim read course anything dealing with the Eastern Front and Stalingrad makes for some heavy reading but in the grimness Grossman does comes up with some light hearted moments fo the soldiers and the civilians Vasily Grossman writes some powerful prose from the land nights the factories tracers lighting up the night sky politics romance and of the battle itself he weaves a great story with hi

E Grossman es un hombre destruido por la guerra su hijo ha muerto en el frente y su madre ha sido asesinada en el gueto Los personajes principales componen un mosaico de lo За правое MOBI #224 ue era la sociedad soviética del momento El fanático Abarchuk el comisari So once I had time to focus on Stalingrad I found it to be something of a page turner I was able to crash through the last few hundred pages with my heartbeat leading the way At first was a little put off by the apparent communist propagandizingtoadying throughout the book book but I came to see it as necessary background Just as books from western societies tend to give precedence to individualism 1940s Soviet Union writers could eually see their world through idealized collectivist eyes This would be especially so when that world was under threat of destruction by nazism At times I did find certain parts a bit jarring wondering how they really fit in with the book as a whole or with what was going on around them Overall however the writing was powerful and often gripping I m not usually one to get excited about battle scenes but Grossman did a wonderful job of making things move I did also have an issue with the whole hero thing but then I m not from a society that dwells on the concept Probably works better for Russians and AmericansMaybe later I ll organize myself to write details about my thoughts The writing is such that I have had a myriad of war images going through my mind and a great many interesting dreams A good book Well worth the read I now have Life and Fate on order

O Krímov el viejo marxista Mostovskói el científico Shtrum y Aleksandra Sháposhnikova cuya vitalidad triunfará sobre el mal y la muerte se interrogan acerca de la viabilidad del comunismo y el porué del fascismo mientras luchan por sobrevivir a los horrores de la guerra Save me a fragment of violent foamSave me a rifle save a plow for meAnd let them place it at my graveWith a red ear of grain from your soilThat it be known if there be any doubtThat I died loving you and you loved meAnd if I did not fight in your waistI leave in your honour this dark grenadeThis song of love for Stalingrad Pablo Neruda Nuevo Canto de Amor a StalingradoRemembrance and tribute to those who lived and died among the skeletal remains of a city turned into the seat of hell Pandaemonium A panoply albeit under the heavy hand of Soviet censorship Grossman shines often than not but his sheen is much slathered in the Stalin love reuired for the novel s publication Perhaps a passing glance for those interested in Life and Fate perhaps not In time we may be treated to an uncensored version And I will read it with or without pandemic

En febrero de termina la batalla de Stalingrado Vasili Grossman ue ha estado en primera línea como corresponsal emprende su fresco novelístico sobre la contienda Por una causa justa cuya segunda entrega se convertirá en la mundialmente aclamada Vida y destino Cuando escrib I have long thought of reading Life and Fate but somehow knowing that there was a preuel made me hold of As such once this finally appeared in translation I had to read it Before doing so I read a biography Vasily Grossman and the Soviet Century and I am pleased that I did as it gave me understanding of this magnificent sprawling novel One thing it is essential to understand was that Grossman was always aware of the censors not that it seemed to help so there is much about how inspiring Stalin s speeches are and how the Russians are working together Still you do feel that Grossman believes this to be true and that there is something both noble about the Russians defending their homeland and indeed of how the average Russian has benefited after the revolution particularly in terms of educationIn terms of characters this is a broad canvas than a picture portrait There are a huge number of characters who appear and some are developed others become blurred or suddenly reappear to check you can recall who they are It doesn t really matter though as the real star of the show is Russia herself with Stalingrad centre stage When Stalin announces that the city is not to fall the inhabitants dig in and effectively all join in defending their home Grossman was a journalist who was himself in the thick of war and so this has real authenticityThere are scenes with Hitler Mussolini and other leaders However the real feeling of this book comes from characters whose names were never known peasants miners scientists doctors who did their work without fanfare Grossman also never loses sight of the personal amongst the time of crisis Although under threat characters fall in love lose touch with family have to deal with problems and upheaval and have to live in a time of great uncertainty Some of the storylines are indeed personal than others One character Viktor mirrors the situation that Grossman endured where his Jewish mother was separated from him as the Germans came ever closer The letter Viktor receives from his mother burns in his pocket and in our thoughts unread and imagined by the authorI am so pleased that I finally had the chance to read this I thought it was magnificent and as I am informed that Life and Fate is even greater I look forward to reading on
